# Modifying a letter with scrlttr2

I'm writing my first letter with LaTeX, and I need some help:

1. I need to put the address of the sender on the upper left side of the page.
2. Put my name in the lower right part of the page.
3. I would like to have the date immediately under the receiver name, separated with some space. Can someone help me?
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{scrlttr2}
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\makeatletter
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\opening{Dear...,}
Text....
\closing{Best regards,}
\end{letter}
\end{document}

May I ask: have you tried texdoc scrlttr2on your console? Then you get a documentation. Chapter 4 is for letters ... and chapter 17 in the advanced part ... –  Kurt Mar 14 '13 at 21:20
@Kurt Can you help me to find the documentation? I can't find in web... –  Ford Prefect Mar 15 '13 at 11:32
Of course I can. Go to this link on CTAN and you click on english or german documentation. If texdoc scrlttr2 does not work you first have to install KOMA-Script. See given link ... –  Kurt Mar 15 '13 at 19:36

Since the letter style seems fairly elementary and you're merely concerned with the layout, I would suggest going with a standard article document class, and set the document according to your requirements as-is. This avoid fiddling with length and alignment settings that may be obscure for a non-user of the particular document class in question:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum
\pagestyle{empty}% No page number
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}% No paragraph indent
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{@{}l}
1234-56 Random Rd \\
Randomville, 78901 \\
RANDOMLAND
\end{tabular}

\bigskip

Random Person,% Recipient

\smallskip

\today% Date

\medskip

\lipsum[1-3]% Beautiful letter

\leavevmode\hfill
\begin{tabular}{r@{}}
Best regards, \\ \\ \\
Random Randofsky
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

It's supposed you want an Italian style of letter. So this is the code:

\documentclass[boldsubject, italicsignature]{letteracdp}
\Usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\name{Silvius Maximus}
\signature{Cav. Silvius Maximus}
\textsc{Silvius Maximus}\\
Via Olgettina\\
}
\date{}

\begin{document}
